I use a cat shampoo & conditioner called "Tails". It's a wheat grass based shampoo & conditioner & I love the way it smells. It's got a sweet smell, but it's not over powering & the other cats don't seem to mind him smelling good.
Yes, some cats coats are greasier then others. My red mackrel tabby, Jake, gets a greasy coat. For him, it's his chest, belly and back of legs. So for Jake it wouldn't be stud tail. And maybe your cat just has greasy spots like Jake. I don't know.... But with Jake I have to first rub Goop (yes, hand cleaner) into his greasy spots. Then I rinse, then shampoo with Dawn dishwashing liquid and rinse and then I use his conditioning shampoo and rinse with 3 gallons of water with 3 Tablespoons of white vinegar. If I wash him that way, it lasts 1-2 months. It's quite the process. 2 weeks ago I bathed him with just the shampoo and vinegar rinse and within a few days he looked kind of greasy again. So now I have to bathe him again. That's what I get for taking short cuts! Oh yeah, and because so many cattery's use goop on their show cats, they've now come out with a groomers Goop!
